Hey guys, I had a second phone interview about 3 weeks ago and have not heard back from them yet regarding a decision. I did not ask the interviewer when I could hear back by, but he told me they would be in touch.

I do have his email and have been trying to type something out for the past 20 minutes but can't think of a way to word it.

Could you guys give me a little help?

Thanks for the reply, hows this sound

Hello Mr. xxx,

I hope this message finds you doing well. I was just wondering if you could give me a time frame of when you expect to make your decision by. I am still very interested and I look forward to hearing from you.

There's been several times where I have done this (interviewed, sent thank you email, waited 2 weeks, sent this email asking when I should expect a decision), and I have been ignored.
I am not sure if this is because they:
1. rejected me already but don't feel the need to send me a quick email to let me know
2. don't know the time frame, and forgot to find out for me / email me back
3. don't have time to answer emails, but are planning to get back to me later
4. simply missed my email

Which of these is most likely, and what would you do in this case? This is also relevant for the OP because it will also be his situation if his "time frame" email doesn't get a response.
